The New Forest

PEOPLE......lots of them....if you wish to avoid them then DONT go to Dunelm Mill on opening day and DONT go to a Card Making Fayre (actually do go to the fayre as it was great) but I think it was great because I had huge fun with my friends grand daughter in her buggy, she in the buggy not me ha!  I was restrained as off to Alexander Palace tomorrow to see Dale.  A very enjoyable Saturday after being stabbed with the anti flu virus (I hope) queue this year half an hour and a lovely chat to a really nice lady.  Then I bumped into a previous student of mine from 12 years ago who was ver complimentary and completely made my day
I should be stitching, I should be doing a number of things  but am sitting with the cardboard cat gazing out of the window into the lovely Autumn sunshine & beautiful colours, pondering on all the stencils I have just seen and NOT bought as am picking some up from tomorrow.
This is one that I do already have
This is another favourite of mine, cloth with decolourant & a Thermofax screen.  Hmmm this is a nice piece, I must dig this out as a background.  Got all enthused now so will stop day dreaming and get doing, have a lovely Saturday, I will report on A P tomorrow or Monday depending on how tired I am, oh I am taking a workshop with James Hunting so there should be a little bit of stitch to report and I am looking for this......
Its Rachels fault for lending me hers, what a fabulous little machine, all my 'in progress' projects now have their binding all neatly rolled up ready & I can have one as a Christmas pressie from my DH, good old stick, exciting eh and I also want a new Accuquilt die
This one
or this one
or this one, or maybe none of them if I cant get a good deal, there is another one but I cant remember what its called.  I shall visit lady sew and sew as they did me a deal and also replaced one for me really quickly and without any bother, I was VERY impressed.  I also need to remember (yes Carolyn) to collect my shopping and not leave it there! like at FOQ this year
Right thats enough, off to play, thanks for reading x
